Everyone loves big cats. In all the places they occur, big cats generally top the wish list of visitors wanting the see and photograph wildlife. No other group of animals combines grace, elegance, beauty and power in such a compelling and seductive way. Like so many, wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt is bewitched by their spell and for as long as he can remember, has had the ambition of seeing and photographing all seven species in the wild. Having now achieved this, which locations would he suggest for providing best big cat experiences?
